runs :12 ted robey/neighbor motorists have long questioned the effectiveness of red light cameras..... and new research is raising new questions.... jeff abell is in highlandtown with the story,
5:31 pm
jeff.... (12:40:43) (abell) "well, baltimore's cameras are still shutdown. they've been shutdown since march. but a new study shows that they may very well be cause more accidents than they prevent....." (12:27:20) "its a lot of traffic...." its been one of the most dangerous intersections in the city..... d here at eastern and kane, motorists know it.....by a slope in the road.....and a light that threatens to stop them. (12:27:15) (motorist) "you see accidents. people coming through the light and then this way...." for years, the intersection has been monitored by a red light camera....where those who run the light....feel the sting of a citation. (12:10:19) (motorist) "there's too many sudden stops." (12:10:25) (motorist) "everybody sees the light is green and tehn just before you get to the intersection the light comes on so like i said there's too many sudden stops." the city has long maintained that red light cameras are keeping the roads safe....but there's growing evidence to suggest.....theyr e not.
5:32 pm
(12:39:35) (abell) "in fact, a recent study by the university of south florida shows that at intersections like this where red light cameras are in place. the number of crashes actually increased by 28- percent." and other studies have produced similar results. five years ago, the federal highway administration found that where there are red light cameras....the number of rear end crashes increased by 15- percent..... but the number of side-impact crashes decreased...by 25-percent. a virginia study produced similar results. (researcher) "the cameras are associated with an increase let me repeat an increase in total injury crashes...." (12:10:38) "its a joke.....!" many baltimore motorists believe its time to put the brakes on cameras ...for good. (12:10:44) "its a money making issue, thats what i think about it...." (12:42:07) (abell) "hwere in the city of baltimore, theere's still no indication when the city plans to turn its red light cameras back on. in highlandtown, jeff abell, fox 45 newsa t 5:30...

responsible for enforcing sanctions against iran, syria and terror groups can't do its job because the government shutdown furloughed so many workers. president ama says john boehner, has the power to reopen the government ... but boehner won't bring the bill to a vote because he doesn't want to alienate tea party conservatives. boehner opposes the bill because it doesn't delay or defund obamacare. the lingering government shutdown...is prompting plenty of debate far beyond capitol hill. as john rydell reports... students at mcdonogh school in owings mills are also tackling that tough issue...and what can be done to resolve the crisis... (rydell) "the government shutdown, the affordable care act, raising the debt ceiling...rest of the country." "what's going on in the government shutdown?" when it comes to talking politics... it doesn't take
5:35 pm
much...to encourage these students. "i'm angry at like both sides in a way." they're seniors...in jeff sanborn's government class. "and i'm just saying everyone deserves an opportunity to be treated...nobody's denying that." and they're scratching their heads... over what they call...the lack of diplomacy on capitol hill. gridlock....they fear...will lead to a real fianancial crisis. (student) "if we default on the debt, i think it would be disasterous our credit rating would probably be downgraded again."(teacher) "do you think this discussion is taking place in washington?....no" (student) "these politicians are out there for their own money and not for the good of legislating the country." these students...say the real debate in washington...com es back to obama- care...should it stay...be delayed..or be abolished. (student) "even though it's horrible circumventing way trying to revoke this law, it's maybe unconstitutional what they're doing." "on the other hand, this is desparation, they see this as their last chance to do something about it." (rydell) "government teacher jeff sanborn ....
